The Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie is finally here!!
The epic premiere of Dragon Ball Super: Broly was released in the United States on January 16.
Today, I've decided to do a review about this epic film.
This post will not contain any spoilers.
Honestly, I watched the movie online and the quality was in HD, which was pretty good. Even though I couldn’t understand the language itself, the action scenes kept me up. If I were in a theater with a bunch of people, the experience would’ve been a lot better.
Nonetheless, I was entertained throughout the entire movie. At the end of the movie, I cheered with complete satisfaction. The Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie is arguably the greatest Dragon Ball movie I have ever seen.
In general, the movie itself is meant to be a bit of a creative, soft reboot for the franchise. The anime staff went with a much more classical style in the Broly movie. So if you’re a huge classical fan and enjoy the look of the movie, you will be pleased to see this film.
Father & Son Relationships
As far as story, action, and character development goes, this has been the best Dragon Ball movie by far. Personally, I think character development was huge in this movie. To see Goku, Vegeta, and Broly when they were babies and how they became the men they are today was truly amazing.
Also, there were some great father and son relationships going on in the movie. We get to see each of the father and son’s relationships differently in their own right. Honestly, the relationship between Bardock and baby Goku was the most emotional one for me.
I actually cried a little bit.
That was a touching moment.
Also, we got to see Paragus and King Vegeta's relationship with their own sons.
All of these Saiyan fathers are flawed.
They were really human and they had a lot of heart.
Broly's Character Devlopment
What caught me by surprise is a re-defined character development of Broly. The story writers didn't do Broly justice in the “Legendary Super Saiyan” movie.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Broly actually talks.
He does more than scream “Kakarot” the whole time (laughs). Broly’s character in this movie was unbelievable.
We actually feel for him.
That in itself was huge for me.
I immediately fell in love with this new Broly character as the movie progressed. While I was watching the movie online, I was definitely team Broly and screamed every time he would appear on screen.
Goku & Vegeta Funny Fusion Segment
Another part of this movie that I loved is the comedic relief. It was half-comedy and half-action. I was cracking up throughout the movie (laughs). I thought both Goku and Vegeta has some really good dialogue scenes together.
My favorite comedic part of this movie is when both Vegeta is complaining about participating the fusion dance with goku (laughs). At first, Vegeta didn't want any part of the fusion dance and stated that the "Earth is done for."
What allowed Vegeta to finally agree to do the fusion dance is Goku telling him that he should care about Earth and his family. This had Vegeta think twice and he finally decided to do the fusion dance.
That is how you convinced a prideful Saiyan.
Goku has the art of convincing.
You've got to love him for that (laughs).
We would expect this scenario because they have been together for so long. Seriously, the fun and excitement that was showcased in this movie, along with the action, was awesome to watch. As a fan, you felt like you were watching a movie with your family.
You are there with friends and family and enjoying the time together.
Creating moments like this lasts a lifetime.
So far, the movie hit a lot of impressive marks. You have comedy, heart, and insane action.
The action in this film was spectacular.
There were so many art styles in this movie.
Plus, the animation fluidity was incredible.
There were so many moments for Dragon Ball fans new and old that makes you see things like, “Whoa! They are doing that again?!”
For me, I was going ballistic and jumped out of my chair when I saw Gogeta returned.
There were some really cool power-ups going on in this film. My favorite power-up scene was when Goku turns into Super Saiyan Blue. During his transformation, we saw a little glimpse of Ultra Instinct, which was awesome.
Also, it was so exciting to see our favorite characters being badass. If you watched the entire Dragon Ball Super series, it has all of the same action. You can see different transformations happening in this movie.
What blew me away was the action itself. It was ridiculously good, but it doesn’t leave out storylines in any way. That is incredibly important because most Dragon Ball moves from before have lacked the story element.
V-Jump Cover of Gogeta & Broly
When I first approached this movie, I had mix emotions on how the film would play out. Now, a lot of anime movies that come from series, tend to be longer episodes. Those anime movies are typically action-packed and lacked in stories.
Overall, I think the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie delivered for me compared to other anime movies.
The Broly movie had the story.
It had insane action.
It brought me to tears.
Most of all, I was cracking up the whole time. I will proudly say that Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a type of movie you would want to see over and over again.
I hope you guys enjoyed the movie as much as I did!
